This will be the first time they have met. There are a lot of tough matches to call today and this is another one.
Garcia has not been in great form this year apart fro a couple of semi finals in February but always does well in Madrid.
Cibulkova beat Radwanska in 3 sets in the last round. It wasn’t a high quality match with both struggling on serve. There were a total of 19 breaks of serve.
Garcia beat Konta who retired in the 2nd set. That could help her confidence.
I see value on Garcia and think she will get a lot of chances today. Whether she can take them is another matter. We have a decent chance of 3 sets.
